New upsized store is nearly double the size of the original unit at 12,831 sq ft across two floors.
In addition to strengthening Silverburn’s comprehensive retail offer, the recent investment in the upsize of JD Sports reflects the increasing demand for sports fashion and fitness-focused brands across the retail and leisure sector. PureGym is due to open adjacent to Silverburn’s 14-screen Cineworld next year.
Anchored by Debenhams, Silverburn is home to over 120 retailers, including H&M, River Island, and Flannels, which opened its first Scottish store earlier this year
Silverburn general manager David Pierotti said: “JD Sports’ significant investment in its presence at Silverburn is testament to the centre’s reputation as the region’s leading retail and leisure destination. The brand’s decision to upsize reflects strong occupier demand and is a prime example of the current trend amongst retailers to invest in large stores in prime regional locations.”
